Mat's Story "I fully enjoy my student’s choir performances after improving my sleep."

I’m a high school choral director in Riverton, a suburb of Salt Lake City. My choirs toured Southern California last year, and will head to Seattle this year.

At my school we try to do more than simply a presentation of a few songs, we try to present a concept that can make the concert an art form itself. I love putting together and directing those experiences for my students. I also love attending the concerts of other music groups, but before improving my sleep I would often snooze during longer performances. That was proof to me that sleep apnea was affecting my life.

The first remedy for my sleep apnea was nose surgery. Not even that stopped my snoring. I was then prescribed CPAP and attempted that on and off for years, but never got used to it or comfortable with it. The apnea was really taking a toll on me.

When I switched to the mouthpiece my wife noticed the difference right away — no noise. A month later we went on a trip to Europe, where there was “no escape” for my wife. No problems the whole trip!

Now that I’m sleeping again I'm able to give my family attention and time instead of napping on the couch.

Salt Lake has a terrific mix of cultural, academic, and activity options. Performances at the LDS Temple Square, PMT theater, Hale, you name it. The University of Utah's concert hall is the best in the state. And just as the rest of the world has discovered Utah's great recreation and national parks, I also enjoy hiking and skiing at places like Snowbird.

Location Guide: High up in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Snowbird provides a feast for the senses with its world-renowned ski slopes, picturesque mountain vistas, and hiking trails which represent the best of Utah Sky Country.
Comment from Mat's Dentist
Mat could not tolerate his CPAP which always leaked and gave him dry nose and mouth which affected his sleep. Respire Blue EF was chosen for Mat because of its durability and small size which takes minimal tongue space. It took him about a week to adjust but now it feels comfortable and he wears it every night. Mat reports sleeping soundly and feeling more rested.
